Baton Rouge, LA

The Mitsubishi Outlander is cool not for being pompous, but for getting the job done with no ‘frills. It is the best option for you if you desire a non-pretentious three-row crossover SUV with the room and power to ferry seven passengers effortlessly. The Outlander is budget-minded but not cheap. It is well built with superior craftsmanship and high-quality material.

For 2018, the Japanese automaker updates the Outlander’s front and rear fascias and interior aesthetics. The new Outlander comes with a wider list of standard tech, safety, and comfort features. Also, a new Touring package is available on the top SEL and GT models. Notably, the 2018 Outlander includes a mew-for-2018 plug-in-hybrid model in its lineup.


Driving the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander is sure to earn you jealous glances in Baton Rouge and the greater Louisiana area. The new model characterizes a restyled front and rear bumper, a more expressive LED lighting, and sharper lines and contours than its predecessors. It is stylish with 18-inch alloy wheels and expensive-looking chrome accents.

All but the range-topping GT model employ the standard 2.4-liter I-4 engine that makes 166 horses and 162 lb-ft of torque. A continuous variable transmission (CVT) complements the 4-cylinder mill and sends power to the front wheels, and optionally to all wheels. EPA estimates that the combination returns 25/30 mpg city/highway with FWD and 24/29 mpg with AWD.

The performance-oriented GT trim ups the ante with an exclusive 3.0-liter V-6 powerhouse that cranks out 224 hp and 215 lb-ft of torque. The V-6 utilizes a six-speed automatic that drives all wheels standard. In various tests, the Outlander 2.4 SEL (AWD) made a sprint from zero to 60 mph in under 9.0 seconds – an impressive time for its segment. It also came to a complete halt from the same speed at a respectable 119 feet.
